My * Art * Education and qualifications : B.A (Hons) in Art & Design at University of Central England, Birmingham. A foundation course at Hereford College of Art & Design. Plus * Awards * for Design including * British Design in Japan * for a Citizen watch design and Heals of London Award for Furniture. I'm wild about Wildlife because I was born in the ancient woodland of Wyre Forest by the River Severn and have spent most of my creative life in the beautiful countryside of Worcestershire... which has a diverse collection of Birds and Wildlife and these are my greatest inspiration for my Art. I love painting in both traditional and contemporary styles. I admire all artists, but I am mostly influenced by the impressionists : Turner, Monet and Van Gogh. I love to paint Birds, Wildlife and Nature in Oils and Acrylics. And my painting style is a combination of impressionistic and traditional influences. For my inspiration I walk in my local Wyre Forest and Countryside observing nature through the seasons. I hope you enjoy my Art & Thank you for reading my mini biography - Simon Knott B.A.
